Chiliproject is a fork of Redmine, a flexible project management web application written using Ruby on Rails. The reason they forked is basically a lack of effort from the main developer, see complete explanation here: Chiliproject: why fork?
A number of packages are available for installing Chiliproject:
Each of these packages provides a different version of Chiliproject. The regular 'chiliproject' package should always provide the latest stable chiliproject release, built from a tarball. The 'chiliproject-git' package will provide whatever is HEAD on the chiliproject github master branch. The 'chiliproject-standalone' package only provides initscripts, user and group for running Chiliproject in a standalone manner, through webrick. This is mainly useful for testing your new setup. Please note that running Chiliproject through webrick is only meant for testing deployments, not for running in production.
So the install procedure pretty much just consists of:
yaourt -S chiliproject
Of course you can use any aur helper of your choice, or pick the chiliproject-git package if that suits your needs better.
Install bundle dependencies
cd /var/lib/chiliproject bundle install
Generate the session store
bundle exec rake generate_session_store
Setup database + user (db-specific) Edit the config files accordingly:
Create db structure
RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec rake db:migrate
Load default configuration data in case of a fresh start
RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec rake redmine:load_default_data
For a more in-depth explanation of the entire setup procedure, how to adapt the bundle setup to suit your needs, how to use different database adapters, take a look at the official chiliproject installation guide for the full explanation: Official Chiliproject installation guide
